Re: Trail e-motor

Stil got troubles with the Sevcon. Programming is a pain in the ass. Does anybody had experience mounting a domino Throtle to a sevcon gen4. Did you get the domino Throttle working with the Sevcon gen 4? Did you have to do anything special to make it work? Are you using all 5 wires or just 3? I am ...

Re: Electric Buell racebike build

Beautiful work, I'm looking forward to the finished product. If you don't already have the Leaf cell modules, it's my understanding that the newer ones have a much higher C-rate. Thank you! Unfortunately I do already have the old 2012 batteries purchased so I will use them. Although my packaging de...

Re: Electric Buell racebike build

You made some unbelievable lemonade here though. That trellis frame is a work of art. I'd love to hear more details on the process of fitting and welding the tubing. Did you make a jig? Was it TIG'ed? How did you settle on 1" DOM? My gut says 1" is overkill, but my gut isn't calibrated for swingarm...

Re: Electric Buell racebike build

Been a while, but I've got some updates to share. I found a home for the controller. I will mount it in the subframe. It fits nicely and can get decent airflow if I mount a heat sink on it. The only down side is that the motor phase wire will not reach it so I plan to make a small junction box. I kn...

Re: Electric Buell racebike build

Hey guys. Sorry it's been a month or two since my last post, but nonetheless I've been working on the Buell. I charged all 14 Leaf modules up to 7.6V so that I can wire-up the entire electric drive train on a bench and test everything before it goes into the bike. So to do that I need to order a cou...

Re: Electric Buell racebike build

Ok so after getting the motor mounting situation resolved I attached the chain to check out the alignment and clearances. 24k gold :lol: IMG_1342.jpg IMG_1333.jpg I had to use some zip ties to hold the chain together. I will need to design some kind of chain tensioner/roller system right around wher...

Re: Electric Buell racebike build

Hey everyone! Been busy the last couple of weeks with holidays and family visits, but I did manage to make some progress with the bike. 8) So here is the update... After getting the rolling chassis together I went on to mount the motor. That's where the first problem arose. The mount holes in the mo...

Re: Electric Buell racebike build

Small update on the progress from the last couple of days. I managed to get the entire front and rear suspension and wheels assembled in order to get the rolling chassis. No problems so far... It was a great feeling to see it all come together and roll. :D Today I will mount the motor and attach the...

I have been working on some more models/CAD files: https://grabcad.com/aastan.gadson-1
Thanks for uploading these! Do you know if the ME motor casing has the same overall dimensions and bolt hole pattern as the ZF 75-7 motor?

Re: Electric Buell racebike build

I've ridden a few Buell's and my impression is the front end can be a little twitchy on change of direction under power. Yea the front end is pretty twitchy due to the short wheelbase and the small rake angle only 21 degrees!! But I plan to get a steering damper and if necessary a trail kit that ba...

Re: Electric Buell racebike build

Next up was some work on the front fork. The inner tubes had some slight corrosion on them that was taken care of with a Scotch-Brite pad and some WD40. :wink: Then I took apart the entire fork assembly to clean out the internals. Everything was in decent shape but it was good to do a full service a...

Electric Buell racebike build

Hi All, What: I've got a project that has been lingering around for a couple of years now and due to many personal moves and readjustments I never really had a chance to finish it. However, now I'm ready to start it back up and finish it for good. To make a long story short I originally intended it ...

Re: EU Road Legal Electrification (???)

Hey E-Zero I'm actually trying to figure out the exact same thing at the moment. I lived in the US and recently moved to Austria. I also have an E-moto conversion that I was working on, but wasn't able to finish it before I moved. My plan was to ship it over here and register it. I have spoken with ...
